    Review

    The story follows DS Ali Green, who recently recovered from near death, is on a hunt for a serial killer. With memory loss Green needs to find the killer before they strike again. Is the killer, victim Erica Shaw, who has since disappeared or a man without an identity?

    I was really intrigued to read this book from reading the blurb but I found there were too many characters, which led me to feeling confused at times.  The dialogue could be written clearer as it was difficult to follow and scenes seemed to change abruptly.

    Dead Girls is a crime thriller with an interesting plot, a fast paced intro and ending.

      Lovely review! It’s a shame when the book doesn’t live up to expectations. I struggle with too many characters as well, I tend to forget who’s who. 🙂
